Party of 10 with a reservation a week in advance, they called to confirm reservation 2 times . Table not ready and they sat us in the corner of the bar. 45 minutes to get our first drinks. Came by twice to take our orders and we sent them to find our drinks. Empty water glasses for 30 minutes, when I notified the manager I was handed a water bottle to fill my own glasses. Seafood towers were messed up, we ordered 2 small ones and the gave us and charged us for 2 large.Food took over an hour and they were out of or tried to talk Insu out of what they did or didn’t have. Sides were messed up and came at different times. We had to get up and go get our wine bottles to fill our glasses. And only when they saw us filling our own glasses they came to offer us another overpriced bottle. $1800 bill for a regretfully time. Not even a check in or apology from the manager in over 2 1/2 hours.

Food was great. We had the ahi tuna for our app, the chopped salad, the NY sirloin, au gratin, Brussel sprouts. We were able to split the plate and had plenty. Service was outstanding, Michael the waiter and Mike his assistant were friendly and attentive to all our needs. We found that all the Ruth’s Chris we been on are consistently great. The one in Somerville was another great experience.

We went on mother's day. Luckily it was not busy but the experience was bad. They should be embarrassed. I ordered their specialty steak the 11 ounce filet, medium rare which the server confirmed to me as "warm red center". Perfect.
When it came out, I cut it and it was cold, purple, and raw inside; the edges were cooked. Flagged down server because he didn't check back and sent back. Mgr came back with it an it was 2 halves, both very well done and gray for the first 1/2 to 3/4" and still inside was purple/raw/cold.
Asked for a new steak. Said I'd wait. Waited for it a while.. my husband had finished eating already before it came; they had time to recook it, but it was the literally the same as the first one! Raw/purple/cold on inside. So, sent back a 3rd time. When it came back it was again well done for first 1/2" to 3/4" of an inch and still cold/raw/purple in the center.
Their website shows a perfectly cooked med rare filet and after 4 attempts they could seem to cook it? I told them to take it back, I was done, bring the check. They did of course take it off the bill (I didn't eat one bite of it after all) and gave me a gc for my troubles but I don't even think I'd go back to chance it again. If I did, I'd try a different location (maybe). Server ghosted us after first steak was sent back and we basically never saw him again. Manager that kept bring out the steak was nice and she apologized a lot (and even offered dessert to go, which we declined) but really this is a steakhouse and their specialty is steak. They need to retrain that chef for sure. A thick steak needs to be done a certain way so the middle gets up to med rare. I can't imagine the difficulty they would've had getting a steak to medium.
Restaurant was NOT very busy at all, we also went at an early time (3:30pm) to avoid crowds. Was not a great Mother's day dinner for sure.

My wife and I went out last night with another couple to celebrate my wife’s birthday and Ruth’s Chris did not disappoint! From the service from our waiter, Michael, to the food that was outstanding, to the management staff being more than accommodating for anything that we needed. Our friends (who have never been to a Ruth’s Chris anywhere) fell in love with the infamous butter flavor that my wife and I have been raving about to them for years!

We will gladly come back to this restaurant again...and hopefully with more friends!

Unfortunately this wasn’t the greats Ruth’s Chris experience. We decided to try this new location and will be sticking with the ones we usually go to. It took us overall 3 hours to get in and out of the restaurant despite very minimal customers dining at that time. We thought our waiter kept forgetting about us. The overall experience was poor and disappointing.

Serena (hope I’m spelling that right) was very nice, warm, and accommodating. A great person to have at the front. There was one host who was cold and bitter though, she made a snide remark and apparently does so normally. Erma, one of the managers was great and my server whose name begins with “Mil...” was great too. She had good recommendations and knew the menu well.

Service was amazing, but the menu is stale and while good it just doesn't match up to places that are far more creative flavor-wise for half of the price. The steak was delicious, but also overcooked, and the pairing, which was the exact same as last year.

For a place that costs this much, I expect far better.
